Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

How Do I Decide?

Sometimes it goes kinda like this…

Yesterday I fell into a genre rabbit hole & for a while I was flashing on that one falling nightmare where I’m floundering arms & legs, posterior toward the…¿bottom?, accelerating at ever increasing speeds beyond maximum velocity (it is a dream).

I was contemplating (well, I had just smoked a fattie & my friend asked about) the depth of 21st Century Dub. I started investigating the French & Italian mid-aughts Dub scene, soon I was listening to electrodub & psydub & dubstep. From there I got sucked into some Burning Man civil war between junglists & the psytrance crowd. Next was all out bloodshed over the difference between dubstep (junglist candidate) & psydub (ditto…psytrancers). Now the most edge artists walk the fine line between the two.

Neither are really Dub, in my opinion. But during this crazy trip, I discovered Panda Dub. The Panda Dub project began in 2007 in Lyon, France. Though inspired by the French & UK dub scene, Panda Dub created his own style as a dub maker by combining reggae roots, UK stepper, & French electro dub into his music.

Panda Dub’s first release was Born 2 Dub in 2007. You can get more from ODGProd.  (check out Archives, it’s simply…Dub).

But is it Dub???

    No. I say this as a tubby purist, but. As far as pseudo-dub goes, this is better than most pretenders to the throne.
